The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development/Occupational Safety and Health Section (AKOSH) administers and enforces workplace safety and health rules for private and public sector workplaces in the state.

8 AAC 61.1015

If an establishment is closed at the end of a calendar year because it operates on a seasonal schedule, the annual summary (OSHA Form 300A) of injuries and illnesses must be posted in a conspicuous place no later than 15 days after the establishment opens for the next season, and remain posted for 90 consecutive calendar days.

If the establishment will be open for less than 90 consecutive days in that season, the summary must be posted the entire length of time that the establishment is open in that season.

AS 18.60.058

Alaska requires employers to notify AKOSH when one employee requires hospitalization, rather than three hospitalizations per incident as required by federal rules (see 29 CFR 1904.39).
